Hyundai i20 from the premium small car segment was honored with 5-star NCAP rating for its high level of safety by the European New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP). For Hyundai, it is matter of pride that i20 is the first car produced in India to receive the NCAP 5 star rating.
This is one of the biggest achievements for the i20 as usually small cars are not very much known for safety. The launch of i20 has created a benchmark in the small car segment with outstanding performance, high levels of comfort, and improved safety.
The ranking of the NCAP safety was based on 4 primary parameters. These parameters are adult occupancy, child protection, pedestrian protection, and safety assist. It was surprising to know that our charming i20 bagged highest marks in all the segments. The premium car from Hyundai scored 88 per cent in the adult occupant protection tests. Some of the advanced safety features in the car are new whiplash assessment, seat belt with pre-tensioner, six airbags, and active head-restraints.
Equipped with a host of car safety features, i20 received a highest score of six out of the maximum seven points in the safety assist category attaining maximum score for its seatbelt reminder and Electronic Stability Control (ESC). Other safety features that make i20 a completely safe car are anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic stability control, and electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD).
By winning the NCAP rating Hyundai i20 has proved to be the safest car not only on the Indian roads and but also globally. This marks another significant milestone in the successful journey of Hyundai.
